 flag 5 Stars by a Britlisher in Hong Kong SAR

Rating added: Thursday, 6th February 2020

Master the Vowel in Tree / iː / with this English Pronunciation Activation Pack. The biggest problem for students is hearing and producing the difference between the long vowel / iː / and the short vowel / ɪ /. These two sounds are next to each other on the IPA chart and are thus very similar. The difference is one of length, and the Pronunciati...

Changes in Fast Speech

 flag 5 Stars by a Britlisher in Hong Kong SAR

Rating added: Monday, 3rd February 2020

Practice hearing the changes in fast spoken speech. When we speak quickly, sounds that we expect to hear may be missing. It’s not only sounds that go missing in fast spoken English. Whole words may disappear, too. Sounds also change in fast spoken English and some words will not sound the same as they do when spoken slowly, or the way they...

The Strawberry Nose

My Biggest Fear

 flag 4 Stars by a Britlisher in Netherlands

Rating added: Friday, 11th September 2020

We all seem to be worried these days. We're worried about the coronavirus. We are worried about the effects of the virus on the economy. We are worried about our futures.

Rating added: Tuesday, 1st September 2020

Vocabulary that we use when talking about frozen food. This lesson was inspired by a student of mine, Monica from Italy, who asked why, if we freeze things, don't we unfreeze them?

 flag 4 Stars by a Britlisher in Netherlands

Rating added: Thursday, 20th August 2020

Comfortable is not an easy word to say, is it? While comfortable only has 3 syllables, many students try to use 4. Comfortable is so uncomfortable a word to pronounce that in 1829 someone decided that it might be better to use only the first syllable and a -y suffix. The informal word comfy was born and what a...
